A Vulture’s nest of rumors

Well all of Tinseltown is abuzz with the rumors that not only is the villain for Spider-Man 4 set to be the Vulture, but that John Malkovich is slated to play the part.
According to this exclusive report (which is being backed by our friends at First Showing), actor John Malkovich is being eyed for a role as The Vulture, a classic Spider-Man foe whose power is a flight suit with razor-sharp wings. Ok, so maybe that isn’t so odd: Malkovich as The Vulture is one of those head-slap, “Should’ve thought of that” casting choices we all see with 20/20 hindsight. However, news that Anne Hathaway (previously rumored for a role as Black Cat) is being eyed for a role as “The Vulturess” have fans around the ‘Net scratching their heads in confusion.

Further, the rumor continues that in that Hathaway would still be playing the character of Felicia Hard, but apparently not as the Black Cat. The Vulturess would be added as a brand new addition to Spidey’s Rogue Gallery.

Personally, we predicted Vulture as the villain of choice for #4, but we were hoping that Dylan Baker, who’s patiently played Dr. Curt Connors for the last two installments would finally take his turn as The Lizard. Alas, it seems that that is not to be this time around, especially if there are two vultures, as the last film proved that three villains in one film is simply too many.

The Vulturess?

Female vultures are also called vultures. I hate when words are falsely feminized. Women are not freaks.

I guess that we should be happy that they didn’t just call her the She-Vulture, eh?

They could just use the M2 character's name if they want a female Vulture perhaps.
